Medical training in the form of nursing scenarios with dolls does currently not involve any communication with the patient simulator (doll). Any information regarding the simulator's state (healthy, leg hurts, arm is in pain etc.) has to be inferred or explained by others.
Laerdal Medical wants to enhance the simulation experience by automating the "Learner -- Patient" communication by a Conversational UI. Their wish is for the patient simulator to be able to answer questions regarding its own condition.
